St. Patrick's film

Quite a few filmy things happening for the National Holiday on St. Patrick's Day. Check the Screen cinema website in Dublin, for instance.

I've been sent a reminder too that the Dublin crime drama Between the Canals opens 'exclusively', as they say, at the IFI on March 18. The film has the unique attribute of being set on St. Patrick's Day in Dublin.

It is, they promise, an action-packed crime drama, and the debut feature from writer/director Mark O’Connor. The film follows three small-time criminals from Dublin’s north inner city in a heart-breaking and occasionally hilarious story of loyalty, duty and masculinity, and features singer-songwriter Damien Dempsey in his debut acting role.

Trailer here, and more info here.
